Dianying' is the Chinese translation for movies. It literally means 'Electric shadows'. To me, this term is particularly meaningful and suggests that movies are the shadows of real life and offer a clear reflection of a society or a culture. My topic here is Hong Kong cinema, the fourth biggest movie production unit in the world (some say the third, after the United States and India). Therefore a mention of motion pictures coming from Mainland China or Taiwan will not be made in this essay, except in the following history of Chinese movies.
